Sisters of Spirit Retreat UPDATE

Two spots left. Registration closes July 8.

The Goddess Pelé continues to dance on the Big Island, destroying and creating as she goes. Anticipating that she will still be flowing when we gather, August 8 – 14, we have added a boat tour to our schedule to witness and photograph Her entering the ocean, building new earth. Sisters, we live in challenging and exciting times. Mother Earth/Pelé’s volatility is a reflection of the active and potential energies, to destroy and to build, in our communities and in our lives. Join our Sisters of Spirit Retreat where we will get elemental, learn to see in a whole new way, and offer our own creative, sacred and healing energies to the world.

A Day at the SF Asian Art Museum

I made my first visit to the SF Asian Art Museum and it did not disappoint. The temporary exhibit, “Divine Bodies” runs through July 29. It asks us to consider how the Divine resides within us. There are also thought provoking pieces on impermanence and a collection of paintings illustrating the story of a near death experience. Now that’s my idea of a lively Spirit-filled day!!

Mother’s Day

Love is in the details…

On a stair between the 2nd and 3rd floors in one stairwell at the hospital is this heart, a mere scrape in the paint. And yet, I notice it every day, every time I take the stairs. It’s maybe an inch across. Anyway, today I took this picture on my way home after baptizing a precious baby girl in the labor and delivery department. She and her mom and grandma were stunningly beautiful.

Easter – Passover – Full Blue Moon – April Fools Day

These are powerful and blessed energies that have converged this weekend. Easter, Passover, a Full Blue Moon and even April Fools Day offer us the opportunity for renewal and rebirth; an opportunity to expand our vision and maybe shift our way of seeing. Many people these days are spiritual but not religious, or secular and non-religious. Some have wounds or carry baggage around religion. Some feel the Sacred in nature. I heard this comment the other day and it resonated with me, so I thought I would pass it along and invite your consideration…  “If the word G-O-D triggers you or doesn’t fit your belief system, try replacing it with A-W-E.” I am always looking for new ways to see and experience Spirit in our world. Part of my practice is to be on the lookout for moments of A-W-E and to find beauty in the mundane. When we are able to stop, take a breath and give ourselves a moment to pause and ground, we create space for A-W-E. My gift this very special Sunday is a small collection of photos taken these past few days where I work, at Marin General Hospital.

May we receive this first day of April and every day with gratitude and grace.

Blessings, Rev. Lisa

Happy First Day of Spring!
